  • Rocket Ship Potholder

Decorate your kitchen with the Rocket Ship Potholder! Hurtling through space, this rocket ship is on its way to explore the universe!

I designed this pattern in honor of my three-year-old son, who loves space. The very first gift he chose for me was a stuffed rocket ship, which I adore and modeled this design on.

Double knit, the potholder is reversible, with opposite colors on the reverse side. Use color changing yarn for interesting color combinations or solid yarn for a more classic look.

Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The finished size is approximately 7 inches by 7 inches (17.8 cm by 17.8 cm). The color work design is chart only, not written instructions.

Disclaimer: This pattern is for creating a decoration only. The knitted item might not protect you from hot items and contact with hot items could melt certain types of yarn. Please use caution.


  • Size 5 US (3.75 mm) needles.

  • Approximately 50 yards (45.7 m) each of two contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn makes one potholder.
